Sometimes I swear boys have it way easier when it comes to holidays and birthdays. Most girls are pretty happy with a variety of things, big and small. Guys however, typically want big expensive things or have already purchased everything they could want already. I’m stereotyping here, but we definitely fall into this stereotype. I will love pretty much all jewelry or cooking supplies, Jacob, uh, he likes electronics and I already bought him a new razor.
So last year I had this huge dilemma of what to get Jacob. I thought of so many options but I seriously didn’t even know his shirt size as a just-about-to-get-engaged couple. I realized that Jacob’s favorite thing is food. He lights up whenever there is good food around. The nights I had made dinner for him he thanked me several times. Food had to be the answer!
We’re both from large families and families that either couldn’t afford to go out much, didn’t live near many restaurants, or didn’t want to pack all the kids up to take anywhere. So I thought who better to give the gift of a fine dining dinner to than this boy who would appreciate it more than anyone! And he did!
This year I had the same dilemma and came to the same conclusion. It took some serious rewards points savings from my credit card to get a gift card to the greatest steak house, but luckily rewards and some extra covered it just fine! I still even was able to get him a few shirts this year 🙂
We made sure to dress up, we even picked out each other’s outfits.
